Airlink and Team Rubicon Join To Support Midwest Flood Relief Efforts

Airlink and Team Rubicon Join To Support Midwest Flood Relief Efforts

In late July, Airlink launched a response to historic flooding in southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois in partnership with Alaska Airlines, United Airlines, and Team Rubicon. 33 US veterans from across the United States traveled to Chicago to help with cleanup efforts in areas heavily impacted by the floods.

Jim “Leck” Leckinger is one of those volunteers. We caught up with him at Reagan National Airport (DCA) before he boarded his flight to Chicago, and he told us what it means to have Airlink’s support as Team Rubicon grows its operations.

More volunteers are needed to assist with recovery efforts in the coming weeks. Act now to ensure Airlink can support more flights to Chicago and around the world.
